Okay, so being a skeptic by nature, I find even just the concept of alien life visiting this planet nearly impossible just by the sheer distance involved alone.

That being said, I'm starting to become a hobbyist because some of these sightings, experiences, etc come from credible people and seem to defy any other explanation (atmospheric reflections, military excercises, etc). AND that UFO Hunters show is a great time killer.

So... what do people generally think?

(Please refrain from any usually obligatory google image photos, and any Mexican jokes)

Btw, let me suffix with, I've never seen anything. And I do think it's curious that the majority of sightings do seem to take place around nukes.

if earth was 1 meter from the sun, earth would be 150 miles away from the nearest star. we will never know about life anywhere else, simply because im not sold that life can sustain itself long enough for us to find out about it. universe is billions of years old and so big its not possible to fathom. im sure at some point in the universe there was life somewhere, there may be now still, but its simply too big and too old for us to know.

I think it's beyond a shadow of a doubt that life is out there. I think the issue is more about if intelligent civilizations have been able to evolve and if traveling the distance is possible.

I don't think it is. But then again, only a blip ago in our technological evolution ANY space flight was science fiction, and before that, flight.

Had we evolved ten thousand years earlier (and in this scenario, we haven't killed ourselves) who knows what would be possible or not?

According to scientists..the universe is infinite..to think there isn't life out there more inteligant than ours isn't really thinking outside the box..if UFO's are real than obviously their is

thats not what ive heard. its more like a huge circle from what i understand, if you had a long enough time period (which is almost indescribable given the size of the universe) if you were to go in a straight line for long enough, you would eventually end up back in the same spot, possibly. of course they will never know for sure, they also say the universe is still expanding...

In all certainty they exist, however whether they have the means to travel faster than the speed of light needed to visit us is highly unlikely.

Of course there may be some civilizations highly intelligent that do have the means to move space time itself while there may be some less intelligent or lack the technology.

I seem to remember from my astronomy classes in college that if one were to travel at the speed of light, there is a theory that time would essentially stand still for them. But I'm too lazy to research it.

Something or someone has to be out there, not everyone can be lying.

I posted this a couple years ago in a similar thread:

This may sound crazy but I saw something unexplainable when I was a freshman in college. I was playin ball in TX and my roommate and I were asleep in our dorm room when we were awakened by a ball of light kind of staring at us. We woke up at the same exact time and as soon as we did it flew out the window. My buddy jumped outta bed towards the window and I just sat, shocked and confused in bed. The strangest part about it was that we didn't say anything to each other that night. The next morning I woke up and assumed it was a dream until we had the same story. Craziest thing I have ever seen.

I have no dought there is life on other planets. Now, weither that life is smart enough to build a space ship and fly light years to earth is a whole other matter.

Time is relative. A fruitfly's lifespan is about 24 hours. Do you think a fruitfly can fathom something living for 100 years? So, why shouldn't we fathom something living for 10,000 years? And if that were the case, why couldn't some creature spend 100 years of its life traveling? That would be like us spending about a year traveling.

You mean that time is a physical property? That it slows down and speeds up? Not so much that we notice, but on an atomic level?
Hmmm, yes i think your onto something.
